Trasco from Bremen, Germany, was one of those companies that took advantage of the bankruptcy of Chris Hahn's Styling-Garage in 1986. From the outset the company offered similar conversions, mainly based on the W126 Mercedes-Benz S-class and even used various cars that were in fact built by / for Styling-Garage including at least one SGS Mercedes 500SEC Gullwing.

 

Very soon though Trasco went it's own way and became the company that built discretely stretched versions of the 560SEL Mercedes that were very often sold to customers in the Far-East.
